KPK teachers announces to surround Imran Khan’s residence Bani Gala on Oct 17

PESHAWAR: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa contract teachers announced to surround PTI chairman Imran Khan’s residence Bani after the failure of negotiation with provincial government.

Over 600 ad hoc KP and FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas) teachers continued protests, demanding they be made permanent employees after their extended contract ends on October 31.

On Wednesday, Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Pervaiz Khattak met with the representative delegation.

During the meeting, he said that he agreed to take back the decision regarding the formation of board of governors in colleges.

The CM KP, however, said that the demands regarding professional allowance and up gradation will put additional burden on provincial government’s finances and under the current circumstances are unacceptable.

Following which, the teachers denied to accept the terms of the provincial government and announced to continue the protests.

Teachers Action Committee In charge Jamshed Khan said that the CM KP spoke harshly to them and left without listening to their stance.

The protesting teachers while boycotting the election and examination duties said that the protest against CM KP’s behaviour outside Imran Khan’s residence would take place.

The protesting teachers were hired in 2014 through a test. Their contract was to end last year but they were given an extension after carrying out a protest. However, the extended date is expiring on October 31.
